Mathieu Ropert


My name is Mathieu, I’m 33 and I write C++ for a living.

I was born (and currently reside) in France so of course I’m a pedantic snob who likes wine and pastries.

Clichés aside, I enjoy coding, automating stuff, photography, cinema, role-playing games (both pen & paper and live action) and video games. And also wine (but not only the french ones).

I’ve worked in various areas, ranging from kernel programming to web development and databases. My current favorite subject is package management, which I think the lack of has been holding back C++ for years now.

You should easily be able meet me at the C++ French User Group (CppFRUG) meetups which I co-organize in Paris, but also at CppCon and Meeting C++.


With a colleague of mine, we wrote a unified C++ API to query all sorts of SQL databases. It’s called CDBC and it’s unfortunately not open-source yet. In the meantime you can take a look at the poster we shown at CppCon 2016.

I’m also a contributor to the Conan C++ Package Manager.
